Colibri Repair I have the Quantum Lighter with cigar cutter at the back. It has the SST wind-resistant system. One of the handles holding a blade has broken off.

SOURCE: DOOR HANDLE INSIDE BROKEN 98 SIERRA

It helps to have a flat pry tool to get the door panel off but, other than that it's not too hard. Autozone has a tool in the help section that is made to work with those and they have the replacement push clips that always seem to break.

SOURCE: BACK DOOR HANDLE BROKEN.. HOW CAN I OPEN?..OR REPAIR?

I have had the same issue twice...My mechanic was able to open the hatch from the outside using an offset screwdriver. When the handle breaks you have a small opening that you can insert the offset screwdrive in...You can feel around and find the actual trigger that releasese the lock....You have to push down on it...and puff it will open..

The reason this happens is that the lock gets gummed up and rusts...It is a porr design...I make sure I lubricate at least once a month to enssure it does not get gummed up

SOURCE: trunk/hatch will not open. handle seems loose.

2000 ford explorer back hatch handle loose door locked The linkage on the back hatch came unfastened and the handle was loose. Ford uses plastic fastener clips over perfectly good threads to hold this together. The outdoor plastic handle is only conected to the car with two aluminum ribets. One was already missing on mine. But if you just want to open the door, you can rip the handle off and pull it out. hopefully you won't crack the plastic. You can see the linkage screw hanging as you look up through the left hole. Grab it with a plyers and apply a steady force down. This will open the hatch. I just rigged up a different handle and put a nut on the treads to hold it together. This can all be done without tearing appart the interier and may only take 20 minutes. I used a rope and handle from the garage opener, a medium size washer and a nut. First make a small loop, with a small hole to slide over the linkage screw, then the washer, then the nut. Slide the other end of rope through the handle, move the handle very close to the vehicle and tie the not close. Trim the rope and wala ... the hatch works. Or you can pay $300.00+ to have it fixed with the clip.

My wonderful Colibri lighter literally just came apart ! How do I repair it ?


CUSTOMER SERVICE

The problem is that this lighter is more complex than one might expect. Battery, pizoelectric circuit, etc.. I have a uTube video showing disassembly of "some" lighter and that is about the best I can find. I would recommend sending it to the manufacturer if you consider that a viable option.. FYI, bloggers seem to be negative about the brand in terms of durability.

How to replace cigar lighter on lincoln continental 99 it is not a fuse i need to replace the whole thing


Hi,
To replace the lighter, you will need to get behind the lighter body, which has an outer shell screwed on behind the dash.
Disconnect the connectors on the back, then with the lighter taken out. Hold the inside body, and from behind the dash unscrew the outside body. The lighter will come apart in 2 separate parts.
Thanks
Jason

Cigar lighter in My 1996 toyota avalon cannot work well because my navigator cannot charge when pull inside the plug. my radio is ok and I check the fuse it is in good condition. So I think the problem...


there could be no screw, maybe clippers holds that. try pull the frame with hand to unclip, could be bad connection in back of cigar lighter or bad wiring

I have Mitsubishi eclipse '98 GS.Cigaret lighter just stopped working. Checked the fused and replaced but it's still doesn't work. I was using a portable compressor to pump some air in my tire. I need it...


so you replaced a blown fuse to the cigar lighter and it still dosent work?.. then the wiring was compromised before the fuse blew..you need to repair bad wiring to cigar lighter and/or lighter itself internally melted /failed due to your air pump asking for more electricity than the cigar lighter could deliver..once repaired do not use the air pump there again ..good luck

The cigar lighter isn't working how do I fix this problem


This is a fuse problem, check the fuse, it will either be marked lighter or power point, the fuse box is to the left of the steering column it has a plastic cover over it, inside the cover the fuses will be marked on a diagram. If the fuse blows again the cigar lighter is shorted, you will have to replace it, most times the lighter element is the problem and not the well it fits into.

Cigar lighter is not working ?


To remove fuse grasp with needle nose pliers or tweezers and pull out. Hold the fuse up and if there is a dark place inside or you can see that the wire inside is burnt in two the fuse needs replaced.
